How can I use accented or special characters in my title or description?

You can use accented and other special characters in your item text and file titles, but you need to make sure you use the xml-safe code for those characters instead of typing them directly into the forms.

Typing accented characters directly into forms can break the xml for your item, making your files unavailable through the site.

Instead, you'll want to use a special code to represent those letters. There are some examples in the table below, but you can find a complete listing of these codes on wikipedia - you'll use the number in parentheses in the "Unicode code point" column.
